RACE 1

1-Joe’s Life – Beaten heavy favorite @ Harrah’s Philadelphia set a modest pace & settled for second, chased a promising American History here before that & lands the rail

 

8-Sneak On Bye – Quickly adapted to the tougher east coast competition & rallied past Joe’s Life @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, chance to progress further despite the tougher post

 

4-Big Bad Jason – Ships in for high percentage Jackie Greene stable, solid form @ Plainridge & draws well fresh off a narrow loss in the slop

 

RACE 2

6-JK Will Power – Tangled with last year’s top sophomores, battling top foes @ Hoosier Park in a 4YO transition season, ships into a softer spot & changes barns

 

5-Downthehighway – Only two for 27 this season, but this Burke trainee has been pretty sharp in PA recently & drops off a no-chance trip

 

2-Don’tcallmefrancis – Won last year’s Anthony Abbatiello Classic, just missed @ Yonkers two starts back, 1:52.1 winner here this season draws well to stalk the speed

 

RACE 3

2-Aberdeen Hanover – Still remember his post ten win in 1:49.4 with a nice late burst back on August 4, drops here, draws inside & adds Bionic Man

 

4-Major Legacy – Followed his huge upset with another sterling rally from last to just miss another shocker last week, takes another step up while in career form

 

1A-Lawrencetown Beach – 3YO tightened up with speed from the same demanding post last week, can step up further to lead this formidable Team Burke entry

 

RACE 4

5-Massive Lightning – Lived up to the strong tote action & thundered home to a mild upset in his debut here, then rallied again to hit the board, drops back down to an easier level

 

1-Neverdie – Gelding has caught fire in his last three @ Plainridge, rallied for a huge upset two starts back, then just missed another, lands the rail & seems to match up well with these

 

3-Broadway Concert – Filly just missed against salty N/W of 7 company @ Pocono recently, finished a nonthreatening fourth in her first start here, builds on that from a similar post

 

RACE 5

6-Stylish Beachwhere – Stepped up to the Open Handicap level @ Saratoga recently, 1:51.3 performer @ Mohawk this season arrives in strong form for the high percentage Jackie Greene

 

1-Maching Me Zilly – Team Burke tuned filly ships in on a long form spree, in line for her preferred stalking trip from the rail in a wide open field

 

7-Made Of Jewels AS – Chased a couple of superior mares last out in a solid acclimating mile from the same post & drops a notch to face a real mixed bag

 

RACE 6

6-Buff – Sharp gelding came right back off a career best to repeat in style with his tenth win of the season, looks to keep it going for the red-hot Jackie Greene

 

8-Gural Hanover – Classy gelding’s last win came when he dominated an Open event on Hambletonian Day, Burke trainee has revived his form as the beaten favorite in his last two

 

7-Fad Finance – 1:52.1 winner here this season returns in good form with a win and two seconds in her last four, capable of stalking & popping with the right trip

 

RACE 7

2-Andreios Kardia – 2016 Tioga Downs Pacer of the Year used his wicked kick to be effective against high level stock @ Pocono this Fall, lands the pole in a field rip for the taking

 

3-Some Attitude – That was some mile on a chilly night in his second start here, took a new mark of 1:50.1 and came right back to blitz them in the slop @ Saratoga

 

1-Always At My Place – Ran into TVG champ Mach It So two starts back in the Dover Downs Preferred & his Burke stablemate is equally sharp

 

RACE 8

5-OK Heavenly – Hasn’t missed a check in four starts since trainer Brett Pelling took over, shows a gutsy effort in the slop three starts back @ Pocono, matches up well & mile track suits her

 

1A-Abbijade Hanover – Sports a 1:49.4 mark in the slop here this season, just missed with a well-rated effort, take-charge Burke trainee sharp on the comeback trail

 

6-Truth And Liberty – Winning machine has prevailed in six of her last eight, her latest with impressive rallies in the Saratoga Open, the right set up makes her a threat

 

RACE 9

2-Stealth Hanover – 3YO was an impressive wire-to-wire winner in the Simpson back on 9-17 in an eye-catching 1:52, added Lasix recently, draws inside & faces a field of question marks

 

4-Can Do – Confirmed horse-for-the-course ships back with revived form in his last three @ Pocono, 8YO veteran gelding draws well with speed

 

6-Dynamic Edge - $111,000 winner this season faded under pressure in his latest @ Pocono, nice blowout win before that & can capitalize on that sharp form in this wide-open field

 

RACE 10

4-Iammrbrightside – 1:52.1 winner here in this slop this season has come up against some headstrong winners recently, this is the ideal class drop scenario for sharp connections

 

6-Siskel – Showed much more sustain in his second start here over an off track, chasing a standout Western Joe in :27 flat, can work his way back into a stalking mode here

 

9-Mister Truth – No secret he loves this track & can grind his way into it, class relief, the right pace & live cover trip can set up a late charge

 

RACE 11

4-Pepper Guy – Lightly-raced gelding has found his winning groove & ships in off three wins in a row at three different tracks & draws inside with speed

 

10-Lone Wolf Terror – Hoosier Park shipper getting over a recent sick scratch, stormed home from last to first to prevail in his latest in Indiana, intriguing prospect despite post ten

 

1-Ardeen – Anything trainer Jackie Greene ships in has to be closely considered, this 3YO gelding just missed in his last two on smaller ovals, stalks from the pole here

 

RACE 12

6-Calvin B – Drops another notch after attempting a wide rally off a rated pace, remains strong in the win column and certainly has the class explode past these

 

3-Elrama N – Veteran NZ-bred gelding remembered for his hot streaks & wicked kick, sports a 1:50 mark here this season, lands in a softer spot for his third start off the bench

 

7-Ultimate Beachboy – Classy Burke trainee is 0 for 19 in 2017, but knocking on the door in his last three, look for him to fire out to secure his preferred stalking trip
